4 Skin Myths Busted!

Are you still following old wives tales when it comes to your skin care? I'm blasting the roof off of 4 commonly used skin care routines.

1. Facial Exercises Tone and Make You Look Younger

So, did you guys know that our facial muscles attached directly to our skin? It's true! There aren't any ligaments are tissue in between, facial exercises will just contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Stop it already!

2. Pores Open and Close

Pores are openings in the skin that allow our natural oils (sebum) to lubricate the surface. You can reduce the size of the pores, but they don't actually close.

3. Layering Several SPF Products Increases Protection

Your only protected by the highest SPF you are wearing. So applying a moisturizer with an SPF of 15, a sunscreen of SPF of 20 and a foundation with an SPF of 10 doesn't yield a protection of SPF 45. It doesn't work that way.

4. Reduce Eye Puffiness With Cucumbers

Cucumbers contain 90% water, so they are able to sooth and hydrate the skin around the eyes temporarily. On the other hand, you could yield the same results with a cold compress.

Let's make it a beautiful life!!!
